Find the Amazing bridal party ideas

The bride no longer has to pick girlfriends and the groom, his best male buddies. Couples are simply choosing their bridal party based on their relationship with them rather than their sex. At this gorgeous real wedding, Shannan and Matt both included the opposite gender in their bridal parties.

Couples are thinking beyond their closest friends or siblings to include in the bridal party. If grandma has never been a bridesmaid and she is close to the couple, she can score herself a place in the bridal party as a bridesmaid or flower girl! Likewise, if grandpa has been instrumental in the couple’s lives, he could also be standing with the other bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Mismatched outfits have been around for some time now, but this year things are getting even more personalised. Bridesmaids and groomsmen are often gaining full control of their outfit, being able to choose everything from the colour to the style and in the case of dresses, length. The result is a wonderful mish-mash that allows each individual’s personality to shine through.

For the ladies, dresses are quickly being replaced with skirt and top ensembles. Bridesmaids are even bearing a little more flesh with high-waisted skirts being matched with shorter crop tops to give a fresh and modern look.

For the guys, clashing patterns are becoming all the rage. No longer does the patterned tie or bow tie require a blank canvas in the form of a white or solid-coloured shirt. Now, look of pattern chaos is in demand.
